Australia, known even in its own national anthem as 'a sunburnt country', has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. The truth is that there is no immunity from skin cancer, and prevention is imperative. The iconic 'slip, slop, slap' campaign reminds us all of the precautions to take before heading out into the scorching WA sun, though regular check-ups should be considered just as essential a precautionary measure.
In cases of treatment, early diagnosis is always best, so Australians are urged to get regular skin cancer check-ups, particularly if moles or freckles have grown in size or changed appearance, become painful or itchy, or in cases when new moles or freckles have developed.
The doctors at Shenton Avenue Medical Centre use the latest and most accurate methods of detection, such as dermoscopy, to detect skin melanomas even at their smallest, preliminary stages. This helps to achieve early diagnosis, which can lead to an immediate treatment.
In some cases, our doctors will need to perform a biopsy, which will require surgically removing a piece of tissue to test. Our doctors perform these biopsies on-site, always ensuring to minimise pain and intrusion with any minor surgical procedure. Samples are examined at our on-site pathology laboratory, ensuring fast and accurate results.
The food and drink you consume directly affects your health, so the importance of a nutritious diet set out by a medical dietician can't be stressed enough. Your diet can be optimised for sporting performance, to treat a condition, or to compensate for changes that occur with age or life phases such as pregnancy and puberty.
The doctors at Alkimos Beach Medical Centre are fully-accredited dieticians and will be able to outline the best nutrition plan to suit your individual needs.
By regulating your food intake, you will be ensuring your body is supplied with the essential nutrients, vitamins and compounds it needs. This will aid rehabilitation and recovery, as well as improve your body's overall function and performance. Many aspects of physical and mental health are directly linked to diet, so an improvement in that area can have a cascading effect onto other areas of your health and well-being.
If you have a medical condition such as obesity or malnourishment, or are suffering from an eating disorder, please contact us. The doctors at Alkimos Beach Medical Centre can provide an excellent source of advice on medical nutrition and will take every step to help you reach the healthiest, happiest version of yourself.
